One thing I am asked in my working capacity as a Reflexologist over and over again, is whether reflexology will cure a problem or a condition. It could be trying to conceive for a baby, or relieving pain, boosting a lowered immune system, going into labour, improving sex drive or energy levels, even losing weight (NB: there are claims that reflexology may help with all these).

increase in fertility problems. In many social groups there is still an
assumption that the cause of infertility lies with the woman – despite the fact
that4 out of 10 cases of infertility is
on the male side.
